Curt and Draw Tite Hitch Comparison for 2016 Honda Accord Touring V6


Out of all the hitches listed as being compatible for this vehicle, which hitch has the lowest profile, highest ground clearance? I have heard that the Curt looks appealing visually but sits lower than the Drawtite and Hidden Hitch. I have to make a decision on purchasing a hitch within the next few weeks and want to choose the best one for my needs.

All of the hitches we offer for the 2016 Honda Accord are going to give you the same amount of ground clearance. When we measured where the hitches sat in relation to the ground for both the Curt # C11681 and Draw Tite # 24899 we found that they had almost identical dimensions.

If it were me I would go with the Draw Tite though since it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when using a non-supported load like a bike rack.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.
